When we do not process our anger, rage arises. Rage is an uncontrollable, immediate response to an emotional trigger. Rage is a raw and primitive form of anger. When we do not have our needs met as children, our accumulated upset can build into rage. Rage is a venting of stored anger.
Impulsive emotional reactions such as rage often point to suppressed emotions needs from childhood. Rage provides an indication that a need was not met in the past. Rage opens up an immediate opportunity to process and work through deeply held trauma and undigested emotional issues from the past.

With much care,
